At Healthy Pets, we are reinventing the way pet parents access and receive veterinary care. We seek to simplify pet parenthood through virtual veterinary consultations, although there’s much more than that to come.

Healthy Pets is an online marketplace connecting local veterinarians with pet parents on demand through video chat. For a fraction of the cost of traditional, in-clinic service, pet parents can now source reliable pet health and wellness information and care from the comfort of home. Veterinarians are able to better serve current clientele, reach new clientele, and work wherever and whenever they please through our digital platform.

We are a small team of mighty business people, passionate about improving the lives of pets and their owners. We are backed by leading investors in the Toronto area. We were also named Canada’s Most Promising Startup of the Year (2017) by TELUS and winner of PayPal Canada’s inaugural Small Business Contest (2017).

Students can expect the opportunity to work on a project from the ground up. Their contribution will matter and their efforts will be noticed. They will be working alongside a small, agile, friendly team.
